Call to action for Arts Council funding

Body's annual budget up to £500k

If you're planning an arts event over the coming year and wish to apply for Arts Council funding, it's time to fill in the forms.

The body is entirely funded through receipts from lottery ticket sales in the Island, and has an annual budget of between £400,000 and £500,000.

It supports individuals, groups and large organisations in a wide range of artistic activity - from fine arts and film to theatre, dance and literature.

Arts development manager Emma Callin says early applications are an advantage all round:
